5 Fall Favorites


The weather has heated back up here in the good ole O-H, but that doesn't mean my mind isn't drifting off to my favorite season of all.... Fall! I rounded up a list of my five favorite things that I think of when I hear the word "fall". This was hard because I could probably go on forever (the leaves changing colors, having bonfires, going horseback riding), but I'll spare you those for now... 

fall bucket list coming soon. aka next month when I feel like it's not too early to post it. 


1. Bath and Body Works 3 Wick Candles




Yes, I buy these candles year round (they are the best, in my opinion), but the Fall scents can't be beat. I already ordered 3 last week to make sure our house is stocked early - Pumpkin Cupcake, Mahogany Teakwood, and Marshmallow Fireside. I can already picture having our doors and windows open at home with one of these candles lit and that makes me really happy.

2. College Football 
specifically, the team that is going to go ALL the way this year...
The Ohio State Buckeyes!

The first game of the year is this Saturday and to say I'm excited is an understatement... 
bring on the tailgaiting! 



3. Leather


 Leather skinnies, leather jackets, leather skirts...I'm loving this trend for fall.

Especially a plaid shirt with a leather jacket or skirt...so cute.


4. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte's


I used to go crazy over these drinks.

Soon these will be popping up all over our Instagram feeds, and while I still want to get that first obligatory PSL of the year, I usually tend to stick with a Salted Caramel Mocha if I'm looking to splurge that many calories on a drink.

PS-I heard something about PSL being available today for their 10 year anniversary, in case anyone wants one super early!


5. Boots

There is no fall without lusting over some new boots. They are just my thing and always suck me in when shopping online or at the mall. Tall? short? black? brown? Need them all.

For the girls on a budget (like myself), I found these Target booties that are extremely similar to DV Jaxen booties for way less. 








What are your Fall favorites?

My giveaway with Albion Fit is still open! Hurry up and go enter, if you haven't already.

  1. I literally have a post just like this in my drafts!! hahaha.. I love Bath & Body Works 3 wick candles. My store didn't have Pumpkin Pecan Waffles or Pumpkin Carving... those sound awesome! I love the Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Marshmallow Fireside and Autumn. I'm so excited for football and tailgating!!! It's my favorite thing, I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning! :)

  3. GOOOOO BUCKS!!!!!! I will rock my OSU shirt for you this season since I am currently not married to any other team! :-D K-Lord will rock his too, i will be sure of it

    I still cant get over the PSL trend. Maybe because I am not a lattee/coffee drinker? I mean, I even have to ask if lattees and coffee are one in the same?

    But I do love me some pumpkin!

    I am with you on fall candles. I am OBSESSED with Yankee Candles "Be Thankful" HOLY CRAP I burn that all year round. I have even thought about saving leftover wax and making it into a big chunk thing and sticking it in my car somewhere because yankee doesnt make a car hangy thing for Be Thankful!

    I just wrote a long winded comment about a candle. Help me.

  5. I'm loving all of these!!! Especially B&B candles! I'm also loving the leather trend! Can't wait to see how you style it!

  6. I ordered a bunch of the mini candles a few weeks ago, including Marshmallow Fireside and Pumpkin Cupcake. I wasn't a huge fan of the Marshmallow Fireside though. I think my favorites of the bunch are Farmstand Apple and Pumpkin Cupcake. I don't usually burn candles, but our new apartment is in the basement of an old 1950's house and it doesn't always smell pleasant. B&BW to the rescue. :)

    I don't really follow college football, I'm more of a college women's basketball fan. However, most of my family is from Ohio, so we hear a lot about OSU when we talk on the phone. Go BUCKEYES!!!

  7. I need to order some new candles. I prefer B&BW instead of yankee candle. I feel like I can justify spending money on those instead of yankee candles...

  8. A girl after my own heart! I picked up my pumpkin candles this past week when they were 2 for $22 and am waiting for the first hint of fall to burn them. And I am drinking my first pumpkin spice latte as I type! This is definitely the best time of the year!

  10. marshmallow fireside is hands down the best candle! they tried telling me that another scent was the same but was out all year... ehhhh i feel like they were just trying to sell the other candle! ;)

  11. Those candles are my favorite!! B&BW has the best all year around :) I lit one of my pumpkin ones this week for the first time even though I live in Texas and still have at least another month or 2 of Summer weather!

  12. i've had those target booties on my wishlist, but i'm just not ready to start buying fall clothes. i LOVE summer. although i have already bought a few flannels. i'm just a sucka for a good flannel shirt.

    soooo ready for football season to start. technically for me, it already has but i just love all things tailgating. oh and hoping to have a better year this season. :)

  13. I was at the Tuttle store back in July when they had just put out all the new candles and you have to buy the Apple Ale candle! It is AMAZING!!!! I will say, one perk of living in Columbus is getting to smell all the new BBW scents before they launch nationwide!

  14. Love all of those things! Especially the candles, clothes and football!

  15. Love your fall favorites! I love the fashion --can't wait to wear leggings, cardigans, over sized sweaters, boots, scarves! Fall festivals are also my favorite --apple/pumpkin picking, hay rides, corn mazes, etc...

  17. I ran to BBW this weekend to grab a couple candles while they were on sale this weekend, I am so excited to light them!

  18. I agree that Bath & Body works have the best candles! The one where I lived just closed (boo) but I will definitely be ordering "Leaves" so I can still get my fix!

  19. Man, so excited for all of this! I have never tried the BBW candles, but maybe next time they have a sale I need to snag some. I do love the Mahogany Teakwood scent!

  26. Love this post...I actually just posted about fall, BUT because it's not my fave season..just makes me realize that my summer is slipping away. However, fun clothes and candles always make it better...and easier to handle in my opinion.

  27. Boots are definitely one of my favorite things about Fall. Of course I love a good bonfire too!

  28. This post reminded me I need to go buy some Bath and Body Works candles asap! And I also cannot wait for the leather wearing to begin.

  29. I love the B&BW candles, and I'm a huge boot fan. I think I actually like the Target booties better than the DVJ ones!
